Abstract

Virtual technologies generally, and Scenario-based Learning approach specifically, when integrated into a system in enhancing teaching and learning, have shown to be a promising tool to help students acquire knowledge in science. In teaching and learning of Biology, some abstract concepts and dangerous experiments are not conducted in schools due to it being costly or time consuming. The sub-topic chosen: "To describe the application of knowledge on mitosis" was based on results of an earlier survey conducted using the questionnaire technique on teachers and students, to identify the most difficult topic in form four Biology syllabus. An interview was also conducted on teachers to acquire their perception on current teaching aids used in teaching Biology. The proposed VLab-Bio Scenario-based learning tool consists of six modules. This paper describes the process of designing and developing a scenario-based thematic situations, that relates to the experiment module, to be integrated into the VLab-Bio learning tool. Hence, the prototype: Virtual Laboratory for Biology (VLab-Bio): Scenario-based Learning Approach, meant as a learning support tool to learn the topic in Biology, on the application of knowledge on mitosis in cloning was developed.
